I love cocktails and rarely drink a spirit straight (If I do, you know I've had a really , REALLY bad day). This rum drink is a takeoff on a Cuba Libre, my personal favorite (and my boyfriend's as well). Best of all, it takes seconds to make.
Rum and Gingerale
2 ounces rum
4-6 ounces gingerale
Lime juice (optional)
Serve over ice. Stir to combine. Serves one relaxed blogger.
